Three seriously injured in Brockton fire
By Globe Staff
Three people were in serious condition after being pulled out of a burning building in Brockton by several police officers, fire officials said.
A state trooper and three Brockton police officers went into a two-story building on Moraine Street about 1:30 p.m. and brought out two men and a woman as smoke and flames consumed a bedroom on the first floor, said Brockton Fire Captain Robert McGrann.
When firefighters arrived, the victims were outside the home and rushed to Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton. The officers were taken to Brockton Hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation and are expected to be released.
McGrann described the injuries to the three residents as life-threatening. He said fire investigators are looking into the cause of the one-alarm blaze, which was confined to a bedroom and was extinguished within a half-hour.
